Who Am I? Well….

Many moons ago I was a scientist in a neuroscience lab where I got to play with brains and illegal drugs. Now, I’m an award-winning indie author who turns wickedly strong tea into imaginative fiction (so, basically still playing with brains and drugs). 

My fascination for myths, history, and how they interweave inspired my flagship series, The Osteria Chronicles and my second series, Domna (grab your free series starters for those HERE and HERE).

But that all got a bit too serious for someone with a strange sense of humor and odd way of looking at the world. 

So, while sitting at my grandmother’s funeral, my brain came up with an idea for a contemporary fantasy trilogy that’s filled with magic, mystery, snarky humor, and the dead who just won’t stay dead. That idea turned into The Cassie Black Trilogy.

I’m also the host of The Book Owl Podcast. where I explore the tales of quirky books and literary lore. It’s a book nerd’s paradise over there so be sure to give it a listen wherever you listen to podcasts. 

When I’m not creating worlds or killing off characters, I can be found gardening, planning my next travel adventure, working as an unpaid servant to three cats and two guinea pigs, or wrangling my backyard hive of honeybees.
